I have been reading about the progress that Bruce Campbell, of Hillsboro, Oregon, has been making on his Boeing 727 home.

That's right, a Boeing 727 commercial airliner that has been transformed into a house.

OK, so that isn't fair, now is it.

Here, from AirplaneHome.com / ????.com: A Boeing 727-200 Home Project, are two pictures of Bruce's 727 home. The first is shortly after it was moved to the homesite. The second was more recently, and show some cribbing under the forward fuselage, and preparations for a concrete pier for the nose gear.

Today is Mrs Bob's birthday, she's...............getting more beautiful every day!
Mr Bob made a doughnut run for our breakfast.

The Blues parade and celebration is today, fans started setting up along the parade route yesterday afternoon.
Now we have storms in the area.
Tell her I say happy birthday Bob!

Merci ... and the reference to "film paper" was for B&W prints that I made/printed in a darkroom while I was in another club. Hopefully, I will finish my own home darkroom soon. Needs paint finished and installation of some better lighting.

I cannot give at the moment due to medication that I am taking. Nothing serious, just long. I used to give a lot when I was at OU. I even once passed out at the juice bar after giving ...


So your explanation of the passing out can now be that you were too fit. The people I saw passing out were men who do a lot of training exercise and are very fit.

Are you telling us reports about the Blues parade route or are you there giving a first hand account.


This makes a serious difference to how an historian may use the statement you just provided way out in the future.

Airplane crash just outside our town this morning. Two small planes on approach to / departure from the local airodrome. Details sketchy at this stage. But, pilots (and only people on board) in both planes killed.

We make history here.

So this thread is the reference standard by which all history is gaged by.

Why not, if Queen Elizabeth is called Gary?

Good morning tout le monde. Very exciting day yesterday as I saw interested parties tramping through our home during an open house. Someone must have fallen under my or the houses charm as we now have a conditional offer!! Yay!! So bacon and eggs in celebration this morning, and then it is off to the not_just_tires_canadian_store to purchase a helmet for the missus. Yes, the side-by-side will get muddied today. Enjoy your day all.

Let's hope it goes unconditional in no time.
